Raptr plans to add Plays.tv’s Highlights and Stitch functionality to Dota 2 in the coming weeks as well, at which point the service would automatically flag highlights in the top three competitive multiplayer games in the world. You can use a hotkey to manually flag Highlights in non-supported games, then Stitch them together the same way you would with LoL or CS:GO.
Changing the way you see the game
Today’s software update adds some bells and whistles for all Plays.tv users, as well. You’ll be able to optionally show the mouse cursor and its movements in your recordings and add bookmarks to a clip at any point post-game. The clip timeline’s also been revamped, both aesthetically and functionally—you’ll find fast forward and rewind features now.
That mouse cursor addition could prove interesting to padawans looking to learn from e-sports Jedis. Plays.tv has been aggressive in pursuing partnerships in the burgeoning realm of e-sports, recently inking agreements to have its software installed on competitors’ PCs during the Intel Extreme Masters event as well as Wargaming’s e-sports matches (a.k.a. World of Tanks, World of Warships, etc.). That integration gives Plays.tv users a player’s-eye view of the action at some of the biggest e-sports events in the world, rather than the usual omnipotent spectator’s view. Nifty!
